TNA Facial Pain Network

Online community for patients & caregivers | 1-800-923-3608 M-F 9a-5p EST (USA)


The TNA Video Project is a collaboration between TN patients and The Facial Pain Association to raise awareness of facial pain syndromes and to celebrate the Association’s 25 years of patient support and advocacy. Join the Project and let the world hear from you, how this horrific pain can be triggered by something or some action that most people take for granted.
